Experienced Commercial property owners, occupants, and investors know the importance and benefits of hiring a professional and highly-qualified commercial building inspector to perform a Commercial Inspection or Reserve Study.

Reserve Study

The Reserve Study consists of the Physical Analysis and the Financial Analysis. The Physical Analysis assesses the current condition and repair or replacement cost of the major common area components the association is obligated to maintain. The Financial Analysis contains an evaluation of the association's Reserve balance (measured by Percent Funded) and a recommended Funding Plan to offset the anticipated replacement cost of the major common area components the association is obligated to maintain.

Reserve Study: It’s the LAW

Reserve Studies are required per the Condominium Act (55-79.39) and the Property Owners’ Association Act (55-514.1) at least every five (5) years with an annual review. We are here to help you stay in compliance with this law.

Donofrio & Associates, LLC. has a unique Reserve Study System that provides a cost-effective and easy to interpret report, providing a powerful and valuable tool for building/property managers and owners.

Our team of engineers and analysts are spearheaded by our founder, a mechanical, electrical, and structural engineer from the US Naval Academy with over 35 years of experience in building systems.

We will provide an analysis and spreadsheet detailing immediate needs and projected reserve requirements for periods of 10, 20, or 30 Years.
